Post lyrics from a song you like (once a day).



(Don't Fear) The Reaper - Blue Öyster Cult

All our times have come.. here but now they're gone.
Seasons don't fear the reaper,.. nor do the wind, the sun, or the rain. (We can be like they are.)
-
Come on, baby. (Don't fear the reaper.)
Baby take my hand. (Don't fear the reaper.)
We'll be able to fly. (Don't fear the reaper.)
Baby I'm your man...
La la la la la.
La la la la la.

Valentine is done,.. here but now they're gone.
Romeo and Juliet.. are together in eternity. (Romeo and Juliet)
40,000 men and women everyday (like Romeo and Juliet.)
40,000 men and women everyday. (Redefine happiness.)
Another 40,000 coming everyday. (We can be like they are.)
-
Come on, baby. (Don't fear the reaper.)
Baby take my hand. (Don't fear the reaper.)
We'll be able to fly. (Don't fear the reaper.)
Baby I'm your man...
La la la la la.
La la la la la.


Love of two is one,.. here but now they're gone.
Came the last night of sadness.. and it was clear she couldn't go on.
Then the door was open and the wind appeared.
The candles blew and then disappeared.
The curtains flew and then he appeared (saying "Don't be afraid.")
-
Come on, baby. (and she had no fear.)
And she ran to him. (Then they started to fly.)
They looked backward and said goodbye. (She had become like they are.)
She had taken his hand. (She had become like they are.)
Come on, baby. Don't fear the reaper.

D.O.A with Jello Biafra - Wish I Was In El Salvador:

Used to be in a gang
'Till I beat a kid half dead
In a video arcade
Judge gave me a choice: Jail or the Marines
Best time I ever had was being an MP

Aw yeh
I wish I was down in El Salvador
Where I could jerk off with my gun
And kill the poor

More gang busts after I'm discharged
Got on offer from police
Surprise! We'll wipe your record clean
If you'll become one of us

You've got just the skills we need
For the government's official gang
Robothug Riot Squad
Already I want more

Aw yeh,
I wish I was down in El Salvador
We're just countin' days
'Til we can do it up here

Well, Officer Friendly-
What does Elmer the Safety Elephoant
Have to say about this...?
Well, good buddy
I''ll bet he says you can't do this ARGH!
Or this ARGH!
Or this ARGH!
Or even this ARGH!

"His toy gun looked real
I had to defend myself..."
I'm always lookin' for excuses
To defend myself

People are storming out into the streets
People are poouring out into the streets
They hate me, they hate me

I just might have to defend myself
NOW!

It's party time...

I look at you and smolder
With my nightstick and my shield
Little kids throw rocks at me
Their moms call me a pig

Commander says I gotta hold the line
'Til the TV cameras leave
Then we'll fire away, make my day
Just like good ol' Kent State

Why wait!
It'll be like I was down in El Salvador
Gonna jerk off with my gun
and kill the poor
Be a big man with my gun
And kill the poor

Jerk off with my gun
I think I'm gonna kum
Then I'll kiss my gun good night
And put her under my pillow

Nice thread, I think I'll contribute.

Alone by Sleeping With Sirens (featuring MGK)

Could you check my pulse for me
To see if I'm alive
Cause every time that I am near you
Is the only time I feel alright
If there were any way
I could think to turn back time
I'd stay here with you
Sometimes I sit and wonder
Sometimes I feel like letting go
All I know is no one should have to be alone

I don't want to be alone
I don't want to die alone
I could fall apart here and now
I don't want to die alone

I want to be with you, you, you
I only want to be with you, you, you

Tell me what's the point of life
Is it material?
Had everything I could ever want and probably more
When I lay in bed at night
All I do is think of you
So when all this is gone what do I have to come home to?
This life goes by so fast
Pretty soon I'll grow old
What would I have but some stories now that I have told
No one to share them with
And when it's all done
What am I left with?
Tell me what's left

I don't want to be alone
I don't want to die alone
I could fall apart here and now
I don't want to die alone

[MGK:]
Leave me?
How the **** you gonna leave me?
When I'm the one that's on TV
With these girls screaming
Outside with my CD
And I'm begging?
Naw baby, you're the one that can't keep me
Leave me?
Girl how the **** you gonna leave me?
You know I love you, when we fight and we argue
I kiss and I hug you
You push me back, you say that I'm trouble
But every Bonnie got a Clyde with her
Every woman needs somebody that's gonna ride with her
And I can't go on staying alive if I'm alone
Pick up the phone and say hello
I'd rather die with her
Now my night's so cold
When your heart is frozen
Mine's exposed you know this
Try to blame the fame for the way I've changed
And you know those claims are bogus
Baby it's not me, it's us
Maybe now all we need is trust
Maybe this Hennessy will solve our problems
Baby pick it up

I don't want to be alone
I don't want to die alone
I could fall apart here and now
I don't want to die alone
[x2]

Could you check my pulse for me
To see if I'm alive
 
Working Class Hero - John Lennon

As soon as you're born they make you feel small
By giving you no time instead of it all
'Til the pain is so big you feel nothing at all

A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

They hurt you at home and they hit you at school
They hate you if you're clever and they despise a fool
'Til you're so ****ing crazy you can't follow their rules

A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

When they've tortured and scared you for 20 odd years
Then they expect you to pick a career
When you can't really function, you're so full of fear

A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

Keep you doped with religion, and sex, and T.V.
And you think you're so clever and classless and free
But you're still ****ing peasants as far as I can see

A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

There's room at the top they are telling you still
But first you must learn how to smile as you kill
If you want to be like the folks on the hill

A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

If you want to be a hero well just follow me
If you want to be a hero well just follow me

Hmm, interesting thread. I think I'll contribute with one of my personal favourite songs (lyrically, that is).

Avenged Sevenfold - Seize the Day

Seize the day or die regretting the time you lost
It's empty and cold without you here, too many people to ache over

I see my vision burn, I feel my memories fade with time
But I'm too young to worry
These streets we travel on will undergo our same lost past

I found you here, now please just stay for a while
I can move on with you around
I hand you my mortal life, but will it be forever?
I'd do anything for a smile, holding you 'til our time is done
We both know the day will come, but I don't want to leave you

I see my vision burn, I feel my memories fade with time
But I'm too young to worry (a melody, a memory, or just one picture)

Seize the day or die regretting the time you lost
It's empty and cold without you here, too many people to ache over

Newborn life replacing all of us, changing this fable we live in
No longer needed here so where do we go?
Will you take a journey tonight, follow me past the walls of death?
But girl, what if there is no eternal life?

I see my vision burn, I feel my memories fade with time
But I'm too young to worry (a melody, a memory, or just one picture)

Seize the day or die regretting the time you lost
It's empty and cold without you here, too many people to ache over

Trials in life, questions of us existing here, don't wanna die alone without you here
Please tell me what we have is real

So, what if I never hold you, yeah, or kiss your lips again?
Woooaaah, so I never want to leave you and the memories of us to see
I beg don't leave me

Seize the day or die regretting the time you lost
It's empty and cold without you here, too many people to ache over

Trials in life, questions of us existing here, don't wanna die alone without you here
Please tell me what we have is real

Silence you lost me, no chance for one more day
I stand here alone
Falling away from you, no chance to get back home
I stand here alone
Falling away from you, no chance to get back home

Oldie - Odd Future

(Frank Ocean)

Rent a super car for a day
Drive around with your friends, smoke a gram of that haze
Bro, easy on the ounce, that's a lot for a day
But just enough for a week, my nigga what can I say
I'm high and I'm bi, wait I mean I'm straight
I'm a give you this wine, the runner just brought the grapes
My brother give it some time, Morris, and Day
'Course you know the vibe's as fly as the rhymes
On the song, cut and you could sample the feel
Headphone bleed, make this **** sound real
Used to work the grill, fatburger and fries
Then I made a mil and them psychics was liars
Now, how many ****in' crystal balls can I buy and own
Humble old me had to flex for the fogs
Down in Muscle Beach pumpin' iron and bone
Bumpin' oldies off my cellular phone
Yea, bumpin' oldies off my cellular phone

Have you ever been so lonely,
There's no one there to hold?
Just pull me in or disown me,
And then climb inside.
My arms are open wide.
Have a look inside.

It is not that I am scared to learn,
Just why I'm empty inside.
Just hold my hand to show some concern,
If I live or die.
My eyes are open wide.
Help me look inside.

I hear the water drip from the faucet.
It's sweetly falling in tune, who knows?
I'm gently closing the closet,
And I fall to the floor,
and crawl to my room.
The thought of ending it soon...
Just let me sleep in my room.

Hear me cry! Cry! Cry!
I hear a knock at the front door.
Don't come in!
I try to look at you
But I can't stop shaking.
Leave me alone. Just go away.
Mother I'm so scared.
I'm so scared.

An Empty bed but all of my sheets are gone,
They're wrapped around me and you.
All is quiet but the drop of my gun 'cause I,
I want to belong...to someone...
But maybe life's not for everyone.

Ninja Sex Party - Dinosaur Laser Fight

Hey boys and girls
This ninja science lesson's gonna rock your world
So close your eyes and travel back in time
With me and Ninja Brian
It's gonna blow your mind to ****!

It was an ordinary day at Dinosaur High
When Stegosaurus raised his hand and called for high-fives
Tyrannosaurus saw this and got pissed
Because his tiny wrists
Caused his high-five to miss
And he was like "**** this!"

Oh Yeah! Oh yeah! It's an old school Dinosaur Laser Fight!
Oh Yeah! Hell Yeah! Just a classic Dinosaur Laser Fight!

It was a futuristic prehistoric throwdown
But it was quiet because in space there is no sound
Did we mention that this took place in space?
It did. So shut your face
Also, there were robots and sharks

Oh Yeah! Oh yeah! It's a goddamn Dinosaur Laser Fight
In space! With sharks! It's a balls out Dinosaur Laser Fight!

It's ****ing science!
Just ask Albert Einstein. He invented space.

...and then a bunch of ****in' aliens from Mars
Showed up all ripping solos on V-neck guitars
The dinos, sharks, and robots saw they came in peace
So they killed them with lasers
HOLY ****!

And then they had a giant laser party
A Dinosaur Laser Party!

****!!

Hypnotize - System of a Down

Why don't you ask the kids at Tiananmen Square
was fashion the reason why they were there?
-
They disguise it, hypnotize it.
Television made you buy it.
-
I'm just sitting in my car and waiting for my...

She's scared that I will take her away from there.
Dreams that her country left with no one there.
-
Mezmerize the simple minded.
Propaganda leaves us blinded.
-
I'm just sitting in my car and waiting for my girl.
I'm just sitting in my car and waiting for my girl.

Blue October - The Answer

If I can't crawl inside of you,
I'm laughing with a broken face
I stumble across my self esteem.
But to picture the pleasure is making me want my space.

Understand...
That God wrapped you like a bow.
But in my head...
There's some shelves that need cleaning,
From basement to ceiling, control.


If what you're seeing is an open book,
That's great, well I'm an open book.
But I'm real shy.

Now there's a part of me seeking and desperately needing to open up.
That's strange 'cause I'm an open book, a confused boy.


And I'm an automatic steeple for depressed and lonely people.
My heart while in its cage,
It used to give and not receive a thing,
But the only funny thing is that I don't know how to give myself advice.


And I've got this post dramatic thing
I've got this tattoo of a ring that lies
around my wedding finger and that's where I want to state this claim.
That I've got to learn to live and dream
before I go and get myself in love.

In love.

Before, before, before I go and get myself in love.

There's Zoloft, Welbutrin, there's Paxil that's proven, no side effects.
But the rest left unnamed 'cause they worked like a charm on me.


But when your savings is drying,
You can't stop from crying
You've got to suck it up.
You're not her buttercup,
You're not her favorite book.

And I'm an automatic steeple for depressed and lonely people.
My heart while in its cage,
It used to give and not receive a thing,
But the only funny thing is that I don't know how to give myself advice.

And I've got this post dramatic thing
I've got this tattoo of a ring that lies
Around my wedding finger and that's where I want to state this claim.
That I've got to learn to live and dream
before I go and get myself in love.

In love.

Before, before, before I go and get myself in love.

"Take Out The Trash"

Girl! Why not take out the trash?
And once you get him out, tell him not to come back again
Girl! Put that cat in the bin
After what he said, after everything he did

You had him figured out a while ago
And I know it's not exactly breaking news
But it's all been a little like a trial for you
And a bunch more talking won't make him true

Ah, c'mon, Girl! Why not take out the trash?
And once you get him out tell him not to come back again
Girl! Why not give him the slip?
Get the crooked straight
Get the go-getter good and gone

Why? It's so plain that he's just makin' it up
And he's still got you coming back for more
Why you never ever think of breaking it up
Tell me, what bad deal's gonna close that door?

Ah, c'mon, Girl! Why not take out the trash?
And once you get him out, tell him not to come back again
Girl! Why not give him the slip?
Get the crooked straight
Get the go-getter good and gone

I'm not saying all the boys are the same
But some boys are the same and it's Thursday now
I'm not saying all the boys are the same
But some boys are the same and it's Thursday now
I'm not saying all the boys are the same
But some boys are the same and it's Thursday now

Girl! Why not take out the trash?
And once you get him out, tell him not to come back again
Girl! Put that cat in the bin
After what he said, after everything he did

Girl! Why not take out the trash?
Girl! Why not take out the trash?
Ah, come on, Girl! Why not take out the trash?
And once you get him out, tell him not to come back again

Girl! Why not give him the slip?
Get the crooked straight
Get the go-getter good and gone

One of My Turns - Pink Floyd

Day after day
Love turns grey
Like the skin on the dying man
And night after night
We pretend it's alright
But I have grown older
And you have I groIwn colder
And nothing is very much fun
Anymore
And I can feel
One of my turns coming on
I feel
Cold as a razor blade
Tight as a tourniquet
Dry as a funeral drum

Run to the bedroom
Grab the suitcase on the left
You'll find my favorite axe
Don't look so frightened
This is just a passing phase
One of my bad days
Would you like to watch TV?
Or get between the sheets
Conteplate the silent free way
Would you like something to eat?
Would you like to learn to fly?
Would you like to see me try?
Oh no!
Would you like to call the cops?
Do you think it's time I stopped?
Why are you running away?

Metallica - Fade to Black

Life, it seems, will fade away
Drifting further every day
Getting lost within myself
Nothing matters, no one else

I have lost the will to live
Simply nothing more to give
There is nothing more for me
Need the end to set me free

Things not what they used to be
Missing one inside of me
Deathly lost, this can't be real
Cannot stand this hell I feel

Emptiness is filling me
To the point of agony
Growing darkness taking dawn
I was me, but now he's gone

No one but me can save myself, but it's too late
Now I can't think, think why I should even try
Yesterday seems as though it never existed
Death greets me warm, now I will just say goodbye

You're Gonna Go Far, Kid - The Offspring

Show me how to lie
You’re getting better all the time
And turning all against the one
Is an art that’s hard to teach
-
Another clever word
Sets off an unsuspecting herd
And as you step back into line
A mob jumps to their feet
-
Now dance, ****er, dance
Man, he never had a chance
And no one even knew
It was really only you
-
And now you steal away
Take him out today
Nice work you did
You’re gonna go far, kid

With a thousand lies
And a good disguise
Hit ‘em right between the eyes
Hit ‘em right between the eyes
When you walk away
Nothing more to say
See the lightning in your eyes
See ‘em running for their lives

Slowly out of line
And drifting closer in your sights
So play it out I’m wide awake
It’s a scene about me
-
There’s something in your way
And now someone is gonna pay
And if you can’t get what you want
Well it’s all because of me
-
Now dance, ****er, dance
Man, I never had a chance
And no one even knew
It was really only you
-
And now you’ll lead the way
Show the light of day
Nice work you did
You’re gonna go far, kid
Trust, deceived!

With a thousand lies
And a good disguise
Hit ‘em right between the eyes
Hit ‘em right between the eyes
When you walk away
Nothing more to say
See the lightning in your eyes
See ‘em running for their lives


Now dance, ****er, dance
He never had a chance
And no one even knew
It was really only you
-
So dance, ****er, dance
I never had a chance
It was really only you

With a thousand lies
And a good disguise
Hit ‘em right between the eyes
Hit ‘em right between the eyes
When you walk away
Nothing more to say
See the lightning in your eyes
See ‘em running for their lives
-
Clever alibis
Lord of the flies
Hit ‘em right between the eyes
Hit ‘em right between the eyes
When you walk away
Nothing more to say
See the lightning in your eyes
See ‘em running for their lives
